This was tasty, and a cute way to serve a sandwich. :) Anything with pesto on it is a winner at this house, but I should caution future chefs: Find a WIDE loaf of sourdough. Mine was more tall than wide, so the 6 of us looked at the loaf, and said, "No way that feeds 6. Maybe 4." The amount of filling was fine, and we were all pleasantly full, it just looked like it wasn't enough. I did sub canned diced tomatoes due to salmonella outbreak here in US. Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.

This was a tasty sandwich! I made an individual sandwich on a roll, and used my standard soy-based meat substitute, but otherwise included the remaining ingredients as listed. I then pressed it into a panini (kind of) using my waffle maker, for the Panini Challenge for the Italy portion of ZWT 4. Thanks, WiGal!
